    Baltasar Lopes schuf mit Chiquinho eines der frühesten Werke afro-portugiesischer Literatur, in denen die kulturellen und geographischen Besonderheiten des Landes mit Akteuren und Handlung zu einem eigenständigen Ganzen verschmelzen. Die Entscheidung des Titelhelden, sein Land zu verlassen und sein Glück jenseits des Atlantiks zu versuchen, ist auch heute noch paradigmatisch für die Lebenswirklichkeit in der ehemaligen portugiesischen Kolonie, deren Bevölkerungsmehrheit fernab ihrer Heimat (in Portugal, Holland und den united states …) lebt. Chiquinhos Entwicklungsgeschichte ist geprägt vom Konflikt zwischen kultureller Identität, ökonomischen Notwendigkeiten und dem Verschwinden traditioneller Lebensweise, der das Grundproblem aller Migrantenschicksale darstellt: gehen zu müssen, obwohl guy bleiben will; bleiben zu müssen, obwohl guy gehen will.
